program for the general election scheduled to take place in september. our reporter, peter craven, attended the spd conference. he joins us now from the studio in the city center. the democrats have had success in a local election and could possibly be poised to knock angela merkel off her throne, so to speak. what are the chances? >> there is a bullish mood in potsdam. it has a lot to do with the election victory in lower saxony. it was part -- in part because they have strong elysian partners. -- coalition partners. that is a bit of a plus -- strategic fuss. the man they want to send into the ring to challenge angela merkel, peer steinbrueck, he has had his back against the wall not too long ago because of the indiscreet comments he made, also because of his extracurricular activities on the lecturing circuit, earning hundreds of thousands of euros. it was very controversial. he looks like a more -- more formidable challenger. >> what will the campaign issues be? >> social justice, minimum wage. they are talking about greater tax equity, a campaign against tax havens and tax eva

that the 2012 election is a definitive test of your proposition. the reason is obama did not have a opponent who presented a clear and strong argument for reagan knight perspective of stronger government, less taxes, less dependency. you know, romney was a good man but he basically ran on the economy, lousy economy, we need a new ceo in washington. it didn't work. i think we will get a good tis of this in 2016. we are going to have the four years of obama's hyper liberalism, the kind of stuff he elucidated and enuns dated yesterday in the inaugural address. and i would say that if our ideology, conservative, small government ideology is correct, it will leave a mess behind. but we will also need as conservatives, republicans if you like, a standard bearer in 2016 who can make the case. and there is not a dearth of them. we have a very strong bench. we have got ryan. we have got rubio. we have got the governors, there is a whole young generation of conservatives who can make the case that will be the test. although i will say that if liberals keep winning elections, then your theory of a fundamen
to be an obstructionist party. they read the election results and they'll make nice on some things. but it will be very tough going for him. not to say it is impossible, but don't try to do too many things. president clinton who in many ways was a very effective president, he loved to undertake 75 or 80 things on at once. president obama can't do that. his number one priorities have to be peace, world peace, of course, number one, and number two take what is happening now with the economy and move it forward. jobs, jobs, jobs. and his number three problem is he faces a staunchly obstructionist party in opposition. i would expect him to concentrate on trying to get his health reform package, otherwise known as obama care, sort of put in concrete. it's still vulnerable in places. and tweak it. i'll be very surprised if he doesn't make that if not his first priority, his number one legislative priority. >> grover norquist, do you have your battering rams ready for the president? the debt ceiling bustup to come. the republicans making clear they'll fight him all the way on that. i get a sense the president

support do they have? >> out there have been -- there have been electra processes, parliamentary elections, there have been referendums. most recently, there has been a referendum on the constitution. it was passed by the majority of those who went in voted. the opposition are adamant the constitution was ramrodded through by the government dominated by the muslim brotherhood. they insist the constitution favors the muslim brotherhood and the religion on which is based. the opposition will have an opportunity in another election happening within a matter of months. the demonstrators are making it clear they are not satisfied with the way the country is transforming. they are not convinced the government is acting in their interests. at the same time, they cannot deny there has been an ongoing democratic process in which the bulk of the people who have voted have voted for the government in power. those opposed will have an opportunity and if you most about the polls again and try and get the government they want in power. >> thank you so much for updating us on the protest. let's bring in
successful and how quickly they can hold parliamentary elections. the latest rumors are that it will be held in april. that may go to some way of helping to set in stone the new transition process and that in itself may help engender some confidence and stability that parliament may be able to work with the president to bring some stability. but you're looking at an extremely divisive and polarized device at the moment. trying to concoct something out of that appears very difficult at the moment. >> that's true. david, thanks very much. i'm sure we'll see more from him as we follow this story. >>> still ahead on the show, a new poll shows more than half of french people want the uk to leave the european union. can they really bid adieu to britain, though? we'll discuss that when we come back. >>> welcome back to the program. 58% of those polled want the uk to stay in the eurozone. another poll found 52% favored a british departure. meantime, david cameron's pledge to hold a referendum on eu membership if he wins the next election has given his conservative party a boost. still, the increase

would never see eye to eye, but the presidential election appears to have changed that, and now a bipartisan group of eight senators is poised to announce their plan today. illinois democrat dick durbin is one of those senators. he says the stars have finally aligned on this major issue. >> we have virtually been going for maybe 25 years without a clear statement about immigration policy. that's unacceptable in this nation of immigrants. >> the plan laid out in this five-page documents put together by gang of eight senators would overhaul the immigration system. the plan includes a pathway to citizenship for the roughly 11 million immigrants already in the country. it would require those with no serious criminal background to register with the government, pay a fine and back taxes, but not before federal authorities put more unmanned drones and agents along the border. the plan also includes a guest worker program that loosens restrictions for people who work in the agricultural industry as well as their children. robert mendez helped draft the bill. >> first of all they expect
? >> reporter: first it comes during an important window of opportunity before the midterm elections of 2014 get underway, before all the campaigning gets underway. it comes just after president obama was reelected partly because of the strong support of latinos, the fastest growing minority group in the u.s. senator john mccain acknowledged that reality yesterday. >> give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are lose drag mat i canly the hispanic vote which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons and we've got to understand that. >> reporter: so, a senate bill on immigration reform could be debated this spring. we'll see how that goes, bill. bill: thank you, steve. steve centanni in washington. martha has a bit more. martha: lawmakers of course made the round on the sunday talk shows and they expressed their support for the deal. here is some of that. >> cautiously optimistic. someone who spent years between the house and the senate trying to comprehensive immigration reform i'm cautiously optimistic. i see the right spirit. i see things

was the last secretary of state to later be elected president. do you know it? james buchanan. he's actually the sixth secretary of state to become president. and that includes the first secretary of state, thomas jefferson. that was a tough one. thanks for playing along. >>> it has been a big political week from the inauguration to a deal on the debt ceiling to the president naming a new chief of staff. we wanted to focus on a few others that caught our attention. first, secretary of state hillary clinton on capitol hill. she was testifying about the attack in benghazi that left four americans dead. now at one point clinton angrily snapped at republican senator ron johnson who wanted to know why the exact origin of the attack should have been revealed much earlier. >> what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything to prevent to from happening again. >> joining me now, cnn contributor maria cardona and amy holmes, anchor of "real news" on "the blaze." maria, you used to work for hillary clinton. are you proud of your former boss? >> th

elections. we saw the numbers. it has been talked about and talked about since then, the fact that latino voters have been going up as a percentage of the electorate and republicans got fewer than they have in three presidential elections. so it was a real wake-up call we're told, particularly to republicans like john mccain and lindsey graham of south carolina, who had kind of been working on comprehensive immigration reform on and off again. lindsey graham called chuck schumer. they had the first of five meetings. some were after the election. and they set in motion this process, a timetable to have principles now, the end of january, legislative language in march and they hope to have some kind of vote in the senate before the august recess. >> let's talk about the timing of this announcement here. the president was -- he's going to go to vegas tomorrow and is supposed to outline his immigration reform plan. it almost looks like the senators beat him to it here. is there some sort of strategy in thinking if they lay this out today it's more likely to pass than if the president were to
proposals and saying he wasn't going to take no for an answer. david: listen, he did win the election. he did advance his agenda items. peter: listen, he did win the election. he did advance his agenda items and talk about them. this was not the state of the union address. that is where the white house says he will get much more specific about his specific proposals. david? david: all right. peter barnes, thank you very much. we're going to have much more on what a second obama term will mean for business coming up with jerry seib. >> the u.s. market will resume trading tomorrow after posting its third straight week of gains with the dow and s&p 500 hitting five-year highs. is this just the beginning of a long lasting market rally? david: let's bring in our market panel. we have peter kenny, a managing director, and also joining us, zephyr management managing director. good to see both of you. do you credit the president with that success, do you credit the federal reserve and its money printing or do you just credit the american economy and its resilience and its ability to come back fro
re-election. that part is true. >> he is feeling good, he feels like he has the republicans agenda. he did speak with a little bit more of an attitude, if you will, today. not too much but a little bit more. he is trying to tell people, look, we will get out there and pound the pavement on what we think is important and we are counting on you, you the public, the voters to get your members of congress in line with us. it was in that sense a bit of a campaign speech, along with the all inclusive, remembering what inauguration is like. >> larry on his way to the inauguration pulse tonight. dozens of reporters in d.c. this evening for the activities. like this group of high school students. for more pictures and coverage, go to our website. nbc bay area.com. the first family took pictures of their own. president obama is dialed in when it comes on technology and so was the bay area during today's inauguration. let's bring in our business and tech reporter, scott budman who has that part of the story. >> i am feeling under dressed. we found technology on display here in d.c. and at hom
shifting to the government itself and the government is looking ahead to an election, as we talked about many, many times. and here becomes the tricky part because they're trying to embark on structural reforms, they're talking about tax reforms, as well. this will be a multi layered process and hopefully they'll be in power long enough to deliver some of those changes. i think the market was expecting for the bank of japan to come in .deliver everything that was going to solve all of japan's problems after decades of recession, then they were probably misguided. but for the moment, the reaction we're getting from people who were watching japan is they probably took as many steps as they could today to try and address this decision. >> kaori, stay with us. ed, welcome. you just heard a little bit of the back and forth. what's your own opinion here on what the boj has or hasn't delivered? >> good morning. thanks very much for having me on the show. my opinion is i completely agree with everything kaori said. even more than that, i would say to the viewing audience, look, this is the crame
this as a leverage in wake of the election which hispanic and latino voters were favoring democrats, not so in the case of republicans. the g.o.p. recognizes they need to do something. democrats are saying they you will not play political football. >> we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that soxes the problem and becomes law. >> they put their marking on it today and the president will lay out his proposals. the senate majority leader, harry reid, before the news conference announcing the plan came out, said the so-called gang of eight proposal would be a major, major priority and will get it on the senate floor and pass it as soon as possible perhaps by spring. so a lot of momentum. we have not heard from the president and house republicans who control that side of the capitol who will have their say on border security and how to get there. it is always a major fight. >>shepard: thank you. the gang of eight is taking questions. that is when we find out the details. we will listen to the questions. here is john mccain. >> as i have stated befor
is the iron hotter now than it was five, six years ago? >> reporter: the november election. it is as simple as that. republicans knew immediately when they saw the election results. not only that, the overall electorate was much more latino, 16%. but that mitt romney did worse than any republican candidate had done in three or four presidential elections. it was just terrible news for republicans. and they understood that. that is why lindsey graham, one of the republican senators who we will see momentarily placed a call to democrat chuck schumer and said let's get the ball rolling on this again. and i'm told that they had about five meetings, this group of bipartisan senators, six total, and they were -- now eight, too that came in and out. and they wanted to come up with this. and, yes, of course, we have seen this before, but i'm talking to sources on both sides, they say there is still a lot left undone, left on the table, but very, very sticky issues like with border security, like with the path to citizenship, but there definitely is a feeling they're closer now than they have been i
this time. >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons, and we've got to understand that. >> this plan would enable illegal immigrants who have no criminal background to gain temporary legal status so they could stay in the country even as they get on the back of the line for citizenship. it would also allow highly skilled foreign workers like engineers to be able to get visas to come to this country more easily. the white house says the president is pleased with the proposal, and he's going to be making his case for comprehensive immigration reform in a speech in las vegas tomorrow. norah and charlie? >> nancy cordes thank you. >>> washington is abuzz about last night's "60 minutes," where they saw president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton sitting down. it was a joint interview. until last night's edition of "60 minutes," people had never seen it. they revealed the challenges of putting aside their on
the bell. look forward to that. breaking news on the israeli election with tyler. ? >> thank you very much. the early exit polls in israel indicate that benjamin netanyahu has won a third term as prime minister of that country. those terms have not been continuous or contiguous, i should say. he's projected to win though a center left party, a relatively new one, has made surprising gains according to news reports and that could make the coalition-building over there a little more tricky. right now the prediction is that benjamin netanyahu's likud party has won about 31 seat in the -- in the parliament and will take the lead in forming the government. netanyahu had called these elections in a way as a reflection of his policies on the west bank and settlements, the quelling of the uprising in gaza and, of course, israeli relations or lack of relations, i should say, with iran. many people and political observers there believe that this will then continue his relatively more hardline right-leaning policies on all of those three issues. netanyahu, according to exit polls, will once again be
. it helped get this president re-elected by misleading the american public, but now, the chickens are coming home to roost and we're going to continue to pursue this until we find the truth. >> i want to ask you one other question based on what your republican colleague rand paul said today. it was a pretty strong statement. here he is. >> had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of you post. i think it's inexcusable. >> do you agree? >> i'd say the issue is moot because hillary clinton is moving on and senator kerry's stepping up to the plate probably, so that's rand paul's opinion. >> do you think she'd make a good president? i have to ask that because 67% of this country view her favorably. her unfavorable is 28%. the president, anybody in this country, would die for that. >> listen, the people on the other side of the aisle aren't taking the fact this nation's going bankrupt seriously, so she's a member of that party, we haven't passed a budget in the united
over europe? cat lifts coming. the italian elections. you've got the debt coming to in spain. what's your sense of where europe goes? >> spain did a big deal yesterday. was wildly oversubscribed so there's a lot of progress being made. i think that we're going to continue to take those issues one at a time as they come down the road. we've got big elections coming later in the year in germany so i think the market will go from issue to issue here. >> so good to have you on the program. thanks very much. >> michael corbat, ceo at citi. bill, i'll send it back to you. >> look forward to maria's next interviews as well. that one is key right there. the first opportunity for investors to get a sense of the new guy at the helm. >> what he's all about. >> very important banking position. heading towards the close. 40 minutes left in the trading session, and the dow is up 54 points. another new five-year high could be in the offing. >> indeed it could. >> let's take a look at shares of the netflix because this stock is trading like it's at the height of the internet bubble with shares up
